Corey Haim, what a sweet and tormented soul. This morning, the former teen idol passed way of an apparent accidental drug overdose. He had been suffering from flu like symptoms and had been staying with his mother Judy. He had been caring for his mother who had been recently diagnosed with breast cancer.
According to the Los Angeles Police Department, Corey Haim collapsed shortly after midnight Wednesday morning in the bedroom of his mother’s apartment in Hollywood.
Haim reportedly fell to his knees in front of his mother, who called 911 immediately. Haim was still alive when paramedics arrived but very weak. Haim was rushed to St. Joseph’s hospital in Burbank, CA, but could not be saved. The 38-year-old actor was pronounced dead around 2:15 AM. It was reported that it took the ambulance over 20 minutes to reach the actor.
His best friend, Corey Feldman, devastated over his death had this to say.
“I was woken up at 830 AM this morning by my brother and sister knocking on my bedroom door. They informed me about the loss of my brother Corey. My eyes weren’t even open all the way when the tears started streaming down my face.
I am so sorry to Corey, Judy, his family, my family, all of our fans, and of course my son who I will have to find a way to explain this to when he gets home from school. This is a tragic loss of a wonderful,beautiful,tormented soul, who will always be my brother,family, and best friend.
We must all take this as a lesson on how we treat the people we share this world with while they are still here to make a difference. Please respect our families as we struggle and grieve through this difficult time. I hope the art he has left behind will be remembered as the passion of what he truly lived for.Corey Feldman “The Two Corey’s” .
Crazy sad! Corey Haim, a Capricorn, had a wonderful sense of humor and was down to earth. He loved his family and friends, especially his mother. Sadly, drugs had taken its toll on his life over the years. Over the last few months, Corey tried hard to stay clean and was said to be in good spirits. Such a lovely and sweet guy, he will be missed.
Thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.
